With fall on the way, it’s the perfect time for a fun evening out with friends! When I was thinking of getting together with some of my favorite metro New Jersey and New York City area bloggers Halifax at the W Hoboken immediately came to mind! Halifax is known for their farm and coastal cuisine that emphasizes sustainable ingredients—all with a W spin. Conveniently located right outside of NYC via NY Waterway Ferry or Path, this W Hotel location has sweeping views of the city skyline, beautiful event spaces, chic hotel rooms & suites and an amazing restaurant called Halifax.
We sat in the back of one of the main dining areas and the table looked beautiful. The vibe is metropolitan yet welcoming at the same time! It was so great to see so many of my blogger friends at the table. We all lead pretty busy lives, so when we can all gather to chat and catch up it truly is a special moment to savor! I’ve been blogging for quite some time now, but I always see a fresh perspective through their eyes. These women motivate me and I enjoy their company.
First, appetizers were brought to the table and a glass of champagne! We all had a little toast because I’m recently engaged. The appetizers were special small plates of specialty meats, cheeses, tasty artisan breads toasted to perfection and even small bowls of truffled popcorn! It was so delicious.
Next up, Halifax brought out their cocktail list, and we were able to select our drink of choice. I have always been a mojito girl and boy they didn’t disappoint! This mojito was the perfect combination of tart and sweet — so good! My friends had cosmos, rose’ and other beautiful and tasty creations filled the table. For the main course, I had the Maine Lobster Rigatoni and it’s one of the best seafood pasta dishes I’ve enjoyed in awhile. The sauce was so delicious and cooked to perfection. The dessert was a fabulous finishing touch with a Strawberry Shortcake topped with vanilla whipped cream, roasted pistachio ice cream — the pictures below of all of these dishes are sure to entice you!
I also wanted to thank the ladies of the evening that made dining at Halifax even more enjoyable. A meal can be incredible, but when the company is just as top rate — you have yourself an evening for the books! So great seeing Margaux of Karma for a Cure, Cori of Everyday Cori, Kristin of Beauty and the Burbs, Erika of By Erika Batista, Shareen of Pearls and Paris, Jaclynn of Blazers and Bellini’s, Melissa of Super Glam News and Jenna of Growing in Jersey City. A special thank you to W Hotels Insider Brittany Pinter for always shining at the W Hotels, and coordinating such a positive and delicious evening!
